Christ Follower / Husband / Dad / Technician / Businessman
Since my introduction to dental technology in 1965, I have had the opportunity to participate in many facets of the profession. I have been a denture technician, a CDT, a sole proprietor of a one-man denture lab, the head of a five-person denture department, a salesman, a regional marketing manager for a laboratory "chain", a trouble shooter for a laboratory corporation, a crown and bridge technician, and a general partner (now sole owner) of a multi-person fixed restorative laboratory. I also have a growing "home business" that consists of productivity, communication, operational systems and marketing services for dental laboratories.
The Daily Bite
According to LMT's 2013 Dentist Survey, 42% of dentist-respondents say they likely will invest in a digital impression-taking system within several years. In contrast, 63% of respondents have no plans to purchase a chairside CAD/CAM system in the near future.
